Try using the arrow keys

After a smattering of vague teasers, American Horror Story: Freak Show has finally released a full trailer and it's showing off all the finest freaks first — say that five times fast. Set to the supremely eerie song "Carousel" by Melanie Martinez (The Voice alum!), the trailer shows off most of Ryan Murphy's favorite recurring players — Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Evan Peters, Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson — and a few new guys who will be filling out the performers in one of 1952's last traveling Freak Shows.

In advance of each new season, AHS strikes a balance between giving its fans lot of clues as to what to expect, and then turning all of those clues on their head the moment the show premieres. But we've got to try don't we?! Here, I'm laying out a few theories garnered from the new Freak Show trailer. As the song says, "You already bought a ticket and there's no turning back now."
